Sorry for being thick but I don't know what you mean by this. Registering with the Teaching Council you mean?
Under section 3 for adult education. What is this.
The assessment of qualifications is what I need to do. Who do I need to talk to about this.
And how does registering allow you to sub.
Sorry for my confusion.
Yes that would be expensive alright.
There are three (maybe four) categories which you can register as a teacher, primary, post-primary and adult education.
Registering for adult education will allow you to get a Teaching Council number which you will need in order to paid from government funds.
Registering under adult education allows anyone with a degree to register. It was initially set up for tutors delivering courses in what were VECs (now ETB) where a teaching qualification was not required or could not be achieved e.g. plumbing etc.
Contact the Teaching Council re assessment of qualifications. It's €200 per subject and €100 for additional subjects. It can take a few months for this to be completed.
If you were registered, you could register as a sub on educationposts and drop CVs into schools in your area to let them know you are available for substitute work.
Hope that clears it up. Ask again if not sure about something.
